This isn't fishing related, but it's where we do a lot of camping, yaking, and fishing. I know for some, state parks aren't that cool. A bunch of people camped on top of each other. But ours is a bit different. It has many thousands of acres and 4 different camping areas stretched across many miles. So for me to travel about 6 miles from my house to the entrance, and suddenly be in the middle of nowhere...well, that's just pretty cool.

I personally think the Texas Parks and Wildlife do an amazing job keeping these places awesome and I can't say enough good things about them. So it's nice to be able to break free for a few hours, grab my gear, and try to create something that will bring a smile to someone's face.

I grew up out here, my kids grew up out here, and I hope my grandkids grow up out here. You know what....enough of that grandkid stuff, i'm too young for that talk. roflmao

Anyway, I thought I might share some photos I took last night. It was only a couple of hours, but I challenged myself to bring back something new, from a place i've been too a thousand times.

This is the same place so many of my posts with me and the family come from. I just felt like sharing a beautiful evening at our state park. I wrote up a little piece for it that has more photos if you like this kind of stuff.....

Thanks for taking a walk with me,

Oh yeah, this is in the San Angelo State Park. I forgot to mention that. laugh

Great shots thumb
Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

Beautiful nature shots! Thanks for sharing. To me this is the best part of camping, enjoying the beauty of nature.
I meant to behave, but there were too many other options.

Thanks guys! The northside is really a beautiful area. Lots of big trees, shade, and color. The southside, where these photos were taken, is beautiful in it's own way, although there aren't as many trees, more rocks, and a lot flatter. But you have the lake right beside you.

Here's a photo close to the same area from a few months ago I got off the state park's fb page.

A ton of folks didn't think the photos were from the southside, but I just tell them, it's all in how you "see" things. smile
